Scaring The Pants Off Of Me - White Denim

White denim.  Another of those "iffy" items in the closet.  Am I gonna get them dirty, is it too late in the year to wear "white" white?  The answer to both those questions is probably yes.  Whatever.  I wore them...

And I wore them on a Monday too.  We had just gotten in from San Fran late the night before and they were clean and nothing else was.  (The reason for the sleepy eyes…)  They also remained relatively white, which is not normally the case.  
This pair is by Vizcaino. I love the fit of them, they are 2% elastane, 98% cotton, so they hold their shape very well and don't stretch and sag within 5 minutes of putting them on.  

Haha...I look like I have elf ears in this picture…
But I am beginning to feel that sparkle of the upcoming holidays and a this jewel collared sweatshirt is fun!  (I love sequins etc, but I often feel like I'm wearing a dance costume from back in the day.  This is a good amount for me!)

So whatever, white denim anytime of the year is good for me.  I will, of course, freak out about getting them dirty because that's just the way I am…I'm working to get over this…really, I am….

I Am Happy With Normal

The wedding is over (finally, but it was lovely.)  I have a computer (finally, but still learning to use it.)  Life has been exciting and I've enjoyed every bit of it, but I'm ready for life to get back to normal, whatever that might be.

Anyway, just playing around with the new computer, a MacBook Air, which I predict is really far more than I need, but what can I say?  It's place in pop culture sucked me in.
Onto the practicing…So anyway, here's a picture about a week or so before the wedding…

Leather in the work place!!!  Is this an acceptable trend?  
We have had some colder weather, and I can finally wear this dress from My Tribe.  It's perfect for going into fall and winter.  And can we talk about shape and fit for a minute?  Really quite a classic sheath, and I don't feel like I've been "poured" into the dress.  Plus, I've had to do no alterations with this one.  Here I'm wearing it with an old blouse from Javier Simorra and Doc Martins, which have become my staple shoe lately.

I feel like the blouse underneath kept the look a little softer, not so hard core, which a leather dress might otherwise feel.  (I think I might try it with a blazer next time.)  So would you wear leather to work?

Next week the hubby and I will be headed for San Francisco for our honeymoon, any recommendations, restaurants, sights, museums, places that we should visit?
